2017-18 Seating Hearings

Yes, the Seating Hearing excerpts are the same as Spring Audition excerpts.

Seating hearings for all Youth Symphony and Concert Orchestra members will take place on Friday & Saturday, August 11th and 12th at the Life Together Center in Peoria. The student musician will be informed via e-mail of your hearing time. Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time.


Seating hearings will consist of three components:

  1. Excerpts
  2. Solo (student’s choice – 2 minutes in length)
  3. Sight reading

All violins will play the Violin I part. Be sure to listen to YouTube performances in advance to familiarize yourself with tempo and style.
